A traveling program of a national nonprofit that focuses on responsible land use will stop in Coeur d’Alene on Thursday for a presentation on how water affects the local economy.
The Urban Land Institute program will be held from 8 to 10 a.m. at the Parkside Event Center, 601 E. Front Ave.
Representatives from the institute will present “Infrastructure 2010,” with a spotlight on water infrastructure, examining aging pipes, population pressures and management challenges across 14 metropolitan areas.
That presentation will be followed by a panel providing a regional perspective on water issues including reliance on the Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer, potential conflicts between existing and future water users and how water quality affects land use and economic development.
